Unfairly Accused of Domestic Violence?
Unfortunately, some people will resort to fabricating stories of abuse in order to gain an advantage in custody disputes or divorce settlements, and the court errs on the side of safety under our climate of political correctness. An order of protection is a serious matter with extraordinary ramifications. If a protective order is granted, you may spend time in jail, be removed from your home, and even denied access to your children. You may also be restricted from possessing firearms. Additionally, you may be charged with a separate misdemeanor criminal offense for violations of the order of protection. Contact the Law Offices of Douglas B. Warlick if you believe you have been unfairly targeted for a protective order. Mr. Warlick will vigorously protect your rights in court and fight the restraining order with all his legal resources.
